      If you wind up in West Hollywood, you might try Tango Grill on Santa Monica Blvd. near Palm. Casual Argentine-style food, service is usually excellent, tables outside on the sidewalk so you can people-watch. Dog friendly.

      Tango Grill
      8807 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
      310-659-3663

      Or, if you just want a burger, try Steak Depot, basically on Santa Monica Blvd. & San Vicente. It's self-serve joint but hey make a killer chili cheese burger, Cash only.

        Oh yes, if what you need is something decent close to the 10 Freeway, then try the Overland Cafe. It's a reliably good (not stellar) neighborhood restaurant and the menu veers towards healthy in several places. It's on Overland @ Charnock. Head south towards Culver City when you get off the freeway

          Culver City has a bunch of options. Don't know if that's the right neighborhood for you. Kaizuka on Culver is a pleasant place for Japanese food. Surfas Cafe has a lot of salads and sandwiches but limited seating. Bluebird Cafe is very cute with a nice selection of salads, sandwiches, and pressed sandwiches (and cupcakes...mmmm!) Personally, I think Overland Cafe is pretty run of the mill, the type of place if someone suggested meeting there I'd go, but I'd never make a trip there.

            Personally, I like Eat Well on Santa Monica Blvd. in Weho... Easy to get healthy stuff.

            Literati, Jack Spratt's Grille, and Lazy Daisy Cafe all have healthy option esp. Jack Spratt

              how about the newly reopened Sawtelle Kitchen? Asian, healthy (more or less), and in West LA. I'm sure you can search for many people's reviews. I've always ordered either the citrus chicken or the Japanese meatloaf, both of which are very tasty.
